Vince Lombardi Trophy arrives in Phoenix

The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee tweeted out the trophy's arrival on Saturday with an appearance by Cardinals tight end Zach Ertz.

PHOENIX — Check it out football fans: we're one step closer to the Big Game. As Super Bowl Sunday draws near, the Vince Lombardi trophy has arrived in Phoenix!

The Lombardi Trophy arrived early on Saturday and was ceremonially revealed by none other than Cardinals tight end Zach Ertz.

That's right, the trophy is back in the champion's hands. He won the Super Bowl alongside the Philadelphia Eagles back in 2018. 

Is it a sign that another win is on the horizon for the team, or is it a final farewell before a Chiefs victory?

Whatever the case Ertz looked thrilled to show off the trophy at the Phoenix Convention Center. The Arizona Super Bowl Committee tweeted out the video Saturday afternoon just over a week before the game.
